Final designs for two stations at the heart of Melbourne’s Regional Rail Link have gone on show.
Artist impressions of stations being built at Wyndham Vale and Tarneit have been released, as work continues on the major rail infrastructure project.
Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese marked the milestone by inspecting progress on the work that is underway in Wyndham Vale.
The $5.3 billion Regional Rail Link, which is being jointly funded by the Australian and Victorian governments, includes 90 kms of new track between Southern Cross station, in Melbourne’s Docklands, and West Werribee.
“This multi-billion dollar project will not only deliver frequent, reliable rail services to Melbourne’s rapidly growing western suburbs, but it is also laying the first ever dedicated track for passenger trains servicing Geelong, Bendigo and Ballarat,” said Mr Albanese.
“I am delighted to be working with the Victorian Government to build what will be Melbourne’s first new rail line in more than 80 years.
“This vital piece of infrastructure will add capacity to the city’s rail network and help alleviate the growing congestion on its roads.”
